School Vacation Theater Camp

February 20
through February 24

Ages 8-12

9 am to 3 pm daily

In this camp, students will work together with a teaching artist to create and perform their very own musical! In addition to developing ideas for an original script, students will learn standard songs and choreography that culminate in a performance on the Bay Street Mainstage on Friday for family and friends. Students will receive instruction in acting, singing, dance, and musical theater history; and they will also participate in creative theater games and improvisations that help to develop communication skills and encourage them to stretch their imaginative abilities.

Her students have gone on to receive roles and book call backs for many professional productions, including Broadway/Regional Theater, Television, and Film.

She loves encouraging/cultivating creativity, individuality, self confidence, and hard work in all her students, and feels very lucky to be doing what she does!
